NBI Bearings Europe opens a new manufacturing plant in Spain.

NBI Bearings Europe S.A. is a company, which designs, manufactures and markets high quality and performance bearings.

After 14 years of successful development, which resulted us to be present in more than 50 countries, the company will strengthen its growth plan by opening a new manufacturing plant in Spain, mainly focused on the expansion of its product range. “The initial investment will be around 10 million euros and the plant will be equipped with the latest machinery”, states the Managing Director, Roberto Martínez.

The company already has one manufacturing plant located in China with a facility of more than 30.000 m2 and equipped with modern machineries. This includes 15 production lines with quality control that give effective response to customer needs at all times.

The plant in China is fully equipped with machines to manufacture high precision bearings and includes an Aichelin heat treatment line, CNC precision grinding and super finishing machines. This allows us to manufacture cylindrical, tapered and spherical roller bearings with inner diameters measuring from 15 mm up to 1600 mm.

The increasing amount of new orders generated over the last few years has been the fundamental reason for building the new plant. “We will continue to market our current range manufactured in China, but broaden our offer with the new ranges that will be produced in Spain”, affirms the Managing Director, Roberto Martínez.

The initial investment comes to roughly 10 million euros and the new plant will be set up with modern grinding machines from European manufacturers. This will allow us to manufacture 4 types of precision bearings with inner diameters measuring 80-240 mm: spherical roller bearings with steel and brass cage, tapered roller bearings, cylindrical roller bearings and spherical plain bearings.

Our facilities in Spain are already equipped with 3 complete laboratories, which has been operating since 2015. This includes a dimensional and metallographic laboratory, and also a bearing life testing facility with equipment for noise and vibration testing. As a result of these state of the art technology we are able to better support our clients’ needs.

The new facilities will not only bring quicker service to our clients, but will also provide high quality and precision products. This new challenge will become reality by the end of 2016.
